Manchester United Gets Up off the Mat; So Does Rooney
Oldies aren't always golden, but for Manchester United, they work.
The sputtering Red Devils posted their best performance of the season in a dire time of need as they dominanated Tottenham, 3-0, at Old Trafford.
Odds on this fixture were no surprise: United were the underdogs. After Arsenal had finally solved its Mancunian hex, pundits were all over the flamboyant Spurs. But in their darkest hour, the Devils took inspiration from none other than quasi-fantasist Buzz Lightyear:
The Red Devils finally found their sync, scoring early. Real early. Usually, it's the other way around.
Now, really, how hard was that? Especially against a side where everybody thinks he's a striker. You know United are having a good day when Fellaini scores from his left foot. It’s like finding Bigfoot.
The Red Devils quickly doubled their lead, as former Spur Michael Carrick headed one in:
How's that for a perfect assist from his old mates? Having connections works in football, too.
The third United tally came from yet another Tottenham blunder coupled with Wayne Rooney's tenacity:
Only a handful players can beat five players and score. But better than the goal was his celebration:
So, does this officially make Phil Bardsley a hard man, or did April fooling come early?
Maybe he should just stick to football.
